Dr. Sayers was called to Burt last week on veterinary business. The air is full of sand hill cranes and their musical screechings. The man who does not ride a "bike" in Algona this year is not "in it." Decorah is to have a new opera house costing $20,000. Where is Algona? Rev. Whitfleld occupied the pulpit of the M. E. church at Clear Lake Sunday. Louis Lessing was confined to his bed for a few days last week. He is out again. Walter Fraxier, of Riverdale township, is reading medicine witli Drs. Morse and Pride. A full report of the proceedings of the board of Supervisors will be published next week. Ilattie Stephens, who has been very sick with la grippe, was able to come home last Monday. Subscribe for the Home Market Bulletin through the RKPUBLICAN and send it to your friends Some seeding was done in the South end of the County on the 31st day of March— so we are told. Mr. and Mrs. Perry Wilkins are expected home from Minneapolis about the middle of the month. Arthur Tellier closed his school near Wesley last Friday, and is now taking a rest of a few days at home. Miss Ella Langdon returned this morning from Indiana where she has been having her eyes treated. A. M. & G. M. Johnson have an ad in our columns this week. Look over their catalogue of farm machinery. Marsh Stephens has purchased Alman Lattimore's farm northwest of town for a consideration of some $2,300. Gussie Peek returned from Des Moines last Thursday where he has been taking a course in a business college. The RKPUHLICAN is now better equipped than ever to do first class job work of every description. We solicit your patronage. Rev. Luce, of Clear Lake, preached at the Methodist church to attentive audiences, last Sunday both morning and evening. Dr. Garfield returned Friday night from his visit to Vinton Iowa. He was absent a week and spent a very pleasant time. Street commissioner Samson has been engaged with a drag in putting State street in a passable condition, for the past few days. The Kossuth County Bible Society have received a new stock of books. These books are on hand at the Post Office book store. Goldfield Chronicle: Miss Nettie Matson, of Algona, is visiting friends in town and assisting Miss Smith in her millinery store. Mr. G. II. Barr and Al. Brown have just returned from Dundee 111. with a Morgan Stallion. The horse will be for service during the year. Galbraith & Co. have felt themselves cramped for store room and now occupy the old post office room in addition to their former quarters. They are now in very commodious quarters. The Courier was too busy last week to answer our question whether the gave them a little surprise Saturday evening. Mrs. S. C. Platt and children of Lu- Verne, are visiting at the homo Geo. Platt, near this city. The ladies of the Congregational church will give a Supper Thursday evening at 6 o'clock. C. E. Babcock, of Humboldt, former county attorney of Humboldt county, was in the city Monday. Attorney Matson is in Bancroft this week on legal or illegal business we are unable to state which. Company F will hold special election upon the 15th of this month to fill the vacancy of 2nd Lieutenant. An exchange reports the sickness of a citizen and attributes his malady to "too much Indian medicine." At their meeting Monday evening the "Cyclers" adopted cadet gray for the color of the club uniform. License to marry was issued during the past week to, Henry Schmidt and Mary Moser, John Meske and Anna Olmand. Fred Foster has removed his barber shop to the Galbraith corner and is occupying the rooms formerly occupied by Brunei- Bros. Mrs. A. A. Call was summoned to the bedside of her father at Elk Point, Kansas, a little over a week ago. He died last Friday. There will be senators. There will be a special meeting of Prudence lodge No* 205, A. F. & A. M Thursday evening. April Oth, for work on the 3d degree. A good attendance is desired. Visiting brethren invited. By order of the W. M. F. M. Taylor secretary. ' Free Lance Minneapolis: F. g. Stoughof Algona, la., is visiting in the city. Guess the "attraction" is something stronger than business. Well, Forest is a prosperous young man and it is time he was "looking around" for an assistant. This seems to be a good season for the propogation of new newspapers. The Humboldt county Blade is the newest to come to our exchange table. Vol. I No. I is a neat looking little sheet. The paper is to be Republican in politics with Will T. Passage as editor. no meeting of the board of examining surgeons for Algona upon the 15th of this month-one week from today. Frank E Smith has been visiting and attending to business matters at Indianola Iowa, his old home, the past week. lie returned Monday evening. R. J. Hunt had a lively little runaway the other day between Algona and his place north of town, shaking him up badly but doing no serious damage. Frank Slagle is expected home from Cornell about the 10th. He will have very light work during the coming term and will spend part of the time in Algona. Miss Cora Hibbard was called by telegram to Emmetsburg Saturday to attend the funeral of her father, whose obituary will be found in the Whittemore news. Elmer Slagle returned Sunday night to await further orders. He has been filling the place of a sick mail clerk for the past two weeks, on the run from Sanborn to .Chamberlain South Dakota. He has some ground to expect a permanent run on the Iowa and Dakota line of the Milwaukee. Mr. John McKay of Whittemore Township was arraigned before Esquire Taylor yesterday upon the charge of assault and battery. lie was taxed $10 and costs for the offense. The man assaulted was his own son-in-law Mr. P, C. C. Phillips. The provocation for the assault, if any existed we have not learned. LeviPlatta merchant of Plattsville Illinois sends the money to pay for the RKPUHLICAN and has the following to say of Northern Iowa. "You have a fine country for a farmer. I think it far better for a poor man than the East. If I was going to farm for a living I do not know of a better country than North-western Iowa." A Nebraska editor refers to a contemporary as "the wild ass who issues an amateur sheet from his hovel down among the weeds a half mile east of town, with the aid of a jack knife, a few fonts of type and a box of shoe blacking." We infer that the papers fact that Rev. Black can speak of the land of Evangeline from the standpoint of an old acquaintance. One of the first charges he served waa In the valley of the Grand Pre, in Nova Scotia, the home of Evangeline before the Acadlans were driven away by the English. At a meeting of the Citizen's Loan & Trust Company held at S. S. Sessions' office Monday night, the following officers were elected! President, E. J. Murtaugh; vice-president, C. D. Creed; secretary and manager, S. S. Sessions; directors, C. D. Creed, A. A, Branson, J. L. Edmunds, F. II. Vesper, E. B. Thompson, J. C. Frank, A. C. Johns. One Eric Ohm took too much Sagwa, bug juice.or something else, and got to acting up at the Kickapoo doings Saturday night. He was promptly run in by the deputy sheriff and placed in solitary confinement over night. Mr. Ohm desired to keep his ticket as a souvenir of the Occasion and refused to give it up to the man at the door, hence the trouble. From the Malcom Leader we clip the following, whic may be of interest to many of our readers, as it contains the marriage notice of a young lady quite well known in Algona: "Married:-On the 25th inst, by the Rev. R. T. Pressly, at the Presbyterian parsonage, Mr. IL E. Boyd and Miss Carrie Cady."—The groom is a rising young attorney of Poweshiek county, and the bride is a sister of A. C. Cady, of Burt. As a rule we do not publish poetry. We make an exception this week however in favor of a little poem which appears in another column, from the pen of Grandpa Bacon of Wesley examination for the location of an immense factory there." Such news Items are convincing arguments in support of the wisdom of the measure. The Courier's account of the Chaplain Lozler entertainment is about as bright a piece of would be sarcasm as we have seen in that paper for some time past. Such exhibitions of a desire to say something awfully bad, are characteristic of our gaseous contemporary, but this last was unusually so, and yet not more characteristic of Hinchon, than wo had expected his account of the entertainment would be We have noticed that Hinchon embraces every opportunity to get in his work against the old soldier, and he never permits the chance to slur the &. A. R. the W. R. C. or the Sons of Veterans to go by unimproved. What chaplain Lozier had to say was entirely too patriotic in sentiment to suit this latter day "copper head" contemporary of ours. How any old union soldier can give his support to the Algona Courier we are unable to understand, as the Editor of that paper is incapable of appreciating the sacrifice it cost to save this union, and will take a long step out of his way to slur the old veterans and the principles they represent. Justice Taylor's court was the scene of a romantic little incident life, Mr. and Mrs. Blank, of Elgin, Illinois, arrived in Algona last Saturday to see the latter,s mother, who is lying quite low at the home of her son, A. W. Moffatt. "A contemporary," says an exchange, "has an article on democratic duty, but the democrats don't care a peanut for duty, what they want is free trade." Henry Mason has taken possesion of the Lacy feed barn and yards and will be- run Me Kinley Bill was all right or not so far as the sugar schedule was concerned. It now looks like there was a good prospects for our long talked of Y—. Judge Can-having rendered an opinion sustaining the grounds of the rail way commissioners. Regular meeting of W. C. T. IL will be held in the reading room on Friday afternoon of this week at 3 o'clock A very interesting meeting was held last week and a good attendance is desired this week. Gentlemen invited run it hereafter. Mr. Mason will fore long put in a few teams and a livery barn. The Minneapolis Journal prefers war witli Italy instead of considering any overtures for peace upon the part of the Italians—If the overtures are to be played on a hand organ. R. J. Hutchison has sold his farm to Illinois parties who are to become actual settlers of Kossulh county. Mr Hutchison will buy another farm, and it will be located in Kossufch. Owing to iliness Rev. II. G. Smeade the evangelist lias been unable to be here this week as was expected. Nothing preventing he will commence his meetings next Sunday evening. A. B. Patterson, who lias been buying hay at the switch east of Lu Verne, plumed his wings and Hew sometime last week, leaving numerous creditors behind him, several of whom reside in Algona. Russel and Frank Bamsey have just received a fine Red Polled Bull from the Towusend Bros herd in Tama Co. Iowa. They negotiated for this animal when C. E. Townsend was here last week. Geo. Shelley has moved his marble works into Patterson's red carpenter shop on east State street. He is now located in very commodious quarters with a much better place for displaying his work. The Algona district Branch of the over that wsty have been engaging in a fight for the county printing. Our little neighbor on the north— Burt—is spreading itself. To one who has not seen the place since fclhe middle of last summer, the changes, are very striking and the many new and large buildings recently erected give it a more village like appearance than it formerly enjoyed, and the fufcvuje looks correspondingly more hopef uL The court house hall has Been engaged for Tuesday evening, 14, by the Young Ladies' Missionary Society of the M. E. church, for a musical and literary entertainment ealated' "An evening witli Longfellow." Tickets will be on sale at the post office Friday morning. Admission 25 cts; reserved seats 35 cts; children under 12, JO-cts. A series of teachers' meetings are being held in the county this week. A meeting was held at Bancroft ou> Monday and one at Burt on Tuesday while one is being held at Whittemowj today. A meeting will be held at Wesley to-morrow, at Lu Verne Friday aad the series will be closed with a meeting at this place next Saturday commencing at 10 a. m. Our subsidized contemporary, the U. Mr. Bacon is over 90 years of age and has retained all of his powers to a remarkable degree. He still has the prospect of more years before him; thani many men twenty years his junior;. He is the best example in all of our acquaintance of well preserved old age. The prospect for having the Blackford road straightened is begining to look more promising. The council is willing to pay for the right of way pro- in real yesterday afternoon. Henry Schmidt and Mary Moser presented themselves during the course of the afternoon, with a marriage license, and asked the Esquire to proceed with their marriage. There being no visible legal impediment in the road, Esquire Tay loy proceeded, and soon had the pair made man and wife. It was lucky for viding tjhe cost of securing it is not too great, and the board of Supervisors is willing to order the new road if the city will pay for the Womans Foreign Missionary society will meet in Algona the 7th and 8th of May. Miss Cushman from China and Miss Pierson from Des Moines, will address the meeting. Hager Bros, of Sexton are occupying the old Galbraith building on State Street, just vacated by the Algona marble works, with a first class stock of farm machinery. W. W. Jones is conducting the business for the boys. Since his arrival in Washington "Sockless" Simpson has donned socks and other vanities of civilized life. It is said that he now wears silk hose and I D. M., rallied to Kickapoo Indian the defense of the Medicine company last week. Harvey could not very well do anything else and maintain his present high standing in the community for consistency, having so far endorsed the company as to give it so much advertising space in the columns of the Upper Des Moines. Probably the most unique and artistic programs ever used in Algona will be those given at the Longfellow entertainment Tuesday evening to the holders of reserved seat tickets. They will be made of birch bark which grew in Nova Scotia very near where Longfellow's "Evungeline" was supposed to live, tlius being specially appropriate souvenirs of a Longfellow entertainment. E. W. Warner of Burt was a caller at the REi'uiiucAN office Monday. He left his name to swell our growing Burt list. The REPUBLICAN'S farm department and its County correspnd- ence columns took his eye. Mr Warner has been in Kossuth County about four years coming here from Illinois. He thinks that there is no place like Iowa and no place in Iowa that he has seen like Kossuth County. IfBro. Ingham has been afflicted with any of the things that the Sagwa doctor told about and the Kickapoo remedies have benefitted him, there is no good reason why he should not advertise the medicines and give the Sag- wa'man a testimonial, for that matter, "f he has not been convinced of the efficancy of the medicines by personal experiment, his championship of the company and its remedies may be accounted for upon the hypothesis that 'here was a little money in it. The criticism of "Evangeliue" by .'residing Elder Black, at the Long- 'ellow entertainment next Tuesday, will be especially interesting from the i right of way. The out come of it all will probably be that the new road will be put through some time before the close of the year. A committee consisting of Rev. Black of this place Rev. Luce of Clear Lake, Rev. Callan of Woolstock and Rev. Hathaway of Duncan met in this city Monday to arrange a time and place for the next district convention of the Epworth League. It was decided to hold the convention in Algona during the last week in May. About one hundred delegates will be present at the convention and we promise them all the best entertainment the citizens of Algona know how to provide. John Goetlers is having some little trouble over the matter of a suit of clothes that he sold to Ed Benson some time ago. The case came up Monday before Squire Thompson with C. B. Matson as attorney for plaintiff. Attorney for the defendant W. C. Danson filed a demurrer and the case will be heard to-morrow. The legal question at issue is whether a wife is holden to pay for her husband's clothes if he refuses to settle the bill himself,—whether the husband's clothes are to be considered a family necessity, or not. J. D. Davison, of Buffalo Fork, returned Saturday from Ames, where he went to see his son Elwin who is a student in the Agricultural college. It seems that some of the students had the measles during the winter and some of them were ordered out to drill before they had sufficiently recovered. Elwin Davison was among the number and suffered a relapse. lie has had a very sick time of it but is now road to recovery. school, itself and its on the Speaking of the corps of instructors, Mr. Davisou was very much pleased with them. The attendance is very large. The unusually large number of scholars in the primary department of the public school has made a few changes necessary. The school board met Monday night and decided upon the following arrangement: Each class in the lower departments is to be advanced one grade. This will throw the highest class, iu the Grammar department into tbe High School, making an addition to the force of teachers necessary. Mrs. McCollum has been engaged to teach the extra classes and will be in the school room one half of each day. Over 100 scholars were enrolled in the primary department last Monday. Carroll Herald: The Upper Des Moines did some lively kicking against the tin schedule in theMcKinley bill last year. We clip the following from its news column of last week: "A large tin manufacturer, one of the largest in the world, isrt loving his plant from Wales to America, where he will establish, three factories, one already having been located at Joliet, 111. The others will be located soon and arrangements were made laet week by which the parties at the head of the company will soon visit Des Moines with the intention of giving that city a thorough the young people that 'Squre Taylor's form of majfriage service is very short and to the point, for when the ceremony had but 'just been finished and while the young couple were receiving congratulations of Esquire Taylor and Constable Tuttle, who happened to be present, the father of the newly made bride appeared upon the scene and demanded that the cemnoiry" proceed no further;"' upon the- grounds that his daughter was not yet of age. Had Mr. Moser started upon the track of the young people five minutes earlier, or had justice Taylor used a longer and more complicated service, the story might have been different. Mr. and Mi;s. Schmidt are said to be aged about twenty and sixteen respectively. At a meeting of the "Cyclers" Monday evening a resolution governing sidewalk riding, to the-following effect, was-adopted:—All members of the club who were not present will do well to take notice and govern, themselves accordingly. All riding., upon the sidewalks, on (State street, by members of the club, between Rutherford's corner and Johnson's shops, ©v upon any of the walks crossing State street between these-t-wo points, for one block on either sidSj is forbidden. Whenever using the sidewalk in otheu portions of the city jiU. members must dismount for pedestrians. The club intends to stand by this- rule and all members violating it will be disciplined within the means provided; by the constitution. Anyone havingcause to complain against amem- ber should file a complaint with the secretary oS the club. The sidewalks will not be used when it is, possible to ride in the staieet, but there are times when it is a convenience and. an accommodation to- be allowed to use tire walks. This step was taken by. the club to prevent the riding upon the sidewalks from becoming a nuisance, if possible. The Upper Des Moines said last week, by way of apology for the Indian compaay, that the Kickapoo remedies were as standard as. Wizard Oil or Warner's Safe Cure and that they have been on sale in the drug stores here long before the company came to Algona, all of which is probably true. The business of the Sickapoo company is to sell medicine and make money. That is what they are here for. That their medicines are what they claim for them is not true, and their plan of going around the country and giving their customary pow-wows, getting up a cumpmeeting kind of excitement and selling their medicines during the heat of it, is where the fraud comes in. If they left five cents worth of benefit for every dollar they take away, there might then be some excuse for looking upon the business with charitable eyes. It is not only one of the many schemes for robbing the people of their money, but what makes it more reprehensible is the fact that the people who are taken in belong to the poorer class and can ill afford to throw away money. We shall continue to denounce the whole business as a fraud until we learn that the Kickapoo remedies are all that are claimed for them. To Contractors auci Builders.
